good afternoon.. this is the agribusiness report.. i'm david geiger. every year in washington d.c. the u-s-d-a hosts an agricultural outlook forum.. this year is the 92nd.. and the theme is transforming agriculture.. one of our market analysts.. dan hueber is there right now.. he says if you have time for all the meetings.. there's something for every part of agriculture.. with a database of production and trends dating back to the 18 hundreds.. this forum takes a different perspective from the usual survey and data releases from the u-s-d-a. "by no means are anything that's presented here are farmer surveys or things of that nature. it's more on let's look at the economics and what's happening today. what future trends could that call for and of course for many in the industry it's always that first point in the year where a little bit of a peak out
12:51 pm
happening this year as far as acreage numbers and production numbers, those type of things. same in livestock." dan tells me a real value of the u-s-d-a forums and releases.. is he dan tells me a real value of the u-s-d-a forums and releases.. is he doesn't see any agenda they would have in terms of market prices.. having a non-biased source helps out smaller companies dealing with commodities.. he says a good economist knows how to hedge bets.. and that takes a thorough look at what the reports say.. and don't say.. "one of the questions asked this morning of one of the usda economists who actually put out the supply and demand numbers was recognize that we don't know what's going to happen in the weather yet. we don't know what's going to happen with the dollar." after talking about the outlook forum.. i made sure to talk to dan about the current markets.. when the u-s-d-a came out with the projected acreage number yesterday it was slightly higher than some thought.. that put a little pessimism into the grain trade.
12:52 pm
here a week ago, everything was looking a little bit more was stimulated by a little bit of a bounce up in the crude oil market.." "which helped out the commodities, but it helped out even the equity markets as well. and once the glimmer came off of that market, which really happened once there was a going to cut back on production at talking about capping crude production. you know that just really, kind of seemed to take the wind out of the sails and we drifted back lower here." "nice little turn up from a reversal we posted just a little over a week ago. but even there, keep into perspective that i'm looking in the june cattle for example here we are just pushing back into the 126 level, boy we haven't gone anywhere. might be difficult to
12:53 pm
128 range here again. even on this rally." "give the hog market credit that we haven't deteriorated. early in february we had june hogs 81 dollars. a year ago 81 dollars just really seemed to cap off the hog market. but it doesn't look like we have great reason to move much higher than we have here already. " in that u-s-d-a ag forum i was talking about earlier.. the f-b-i is there too.. but not have a booth.. and they're warning of economic espionage.. they think agriculture is a target by foreigners.. are promoting indicators trade secret theft against u-s ag and biotech companies and institutes are on the rise.. the targets are u-s companies.. universities.. and government research facilities.. and that's all i have for the show today.. hope you all have a good weekend.. thanks for tuning in.. we put stories up every day.. check out who-tv dot com... click news
